's. >> the romney model is the more common model for presidential campaigns. usually you find people around the country who are influential and wealthy and have lots of friends and you encourage them to give contributions in bundles, to collect unlimited contributions from their associates and friends and businesses and that will generate significant amounts of money. it's been a bit of a problem for the romney campaign this year. once you've got a $5,000, you are finished with that person, then you have to find a new one. you cannot go back over and over to the same people, the way the obama campaign as for those giving $20 or $50. that means you constantly need to spread the effort. this is the first time really, since 1972, that this campaign has been completely privately financed. there was public money in the presidential campaign from 1976 through 2004 for both candidates and for the matt cain campaign even in 2008. so it's a different world and there's a lot more fund-raising going on these days than before. host: now on the democratic line, margot,. caller: thanks for taking my call
